Taxidermist's haven

This is a small well done museum featuring loads of stuffed birds, mammals, and even fish. There is aka a lot of info about Wyoming's ecology.

This is a great museum for checking out all the wildlife Wyoming has to offer. If you are a hunter or a fisherman you will like the fish exibit or the big game exibit in the basement. This museum is FREE too!

...but they're all dead. If taxidermy and the smell of Formaldehyde is your thing, then add this to your list of places to visit. A small kids area with books, puzzles, and other toys. There's a seating area outside in the back that could be nicer.

We visited with our grandson and he was excited to see so many animals. Very nice to educate kids about Wyoming's wildlife as well as a few animals from around the world. There was no fee and it is a great place to spend an afternoon with kids.

Lots of exhibits, but not enough hands on or gift shop items. Kids couldnt relate to real life experiences. We would of liked to feel a fur or a horn, and buy a bear tooth or postcard for memory of our visit.

This museum has a large variety of taxidermed animals from around the world. There are two floors. Large variety of birds. I was told by the volunteer that the two baby pronghorn on display were actually never born. Their mother was hit by a car before their birth. Not a bad stop.

While unassuming and small by any museum standard, we found Werner to be jam-pack filled with more than we expected. Our grandchildren just LOVED to see (face-to-face) the hundreds of creatures displayed. Grandpa was fascinated by some of the trophy animals and loved the price - FREE. It needs a bigger venue. Dated and so full of displays that it... More

I have been going to the Werner for years and years. I always enjoy taking now people as they are shocked by the amount of information stored inside. It is perhaps the best zoological display available for critters specific to our region. Don't let the diminutive size of the building dissuade you. It's worth the trip.

I haven't been here since I was a kid but it was just as cool after twenty years. My kids loved looking at the bears and the "scary" animals. I had forgotten about the downstairs! Very impressive collection! Thank you for keeping this museum going for all these years.
